WOMEN and black people have been left dumbfounded after learning the Metropolitan police are unable to arrest the right people.
The revelation that the force did not fine Boris Johnson for illegal parties despite first-hand testimony and photographic evidence has astonished both groups, who up until now had complete faith in the rule of law.
Emma Bradford, a female London resident, said: “When I saw the photos my legs buckled from shock. How could the police make such a basic error? They’ve never put a foot wrong before.
“The police force I thought I knew wouldn’t make an oversight like this. Even when they’re aggressively breaking up a vigil for a woman murdered by one of their officers it was always to protect the public.”
Black man Joshua Hudson said: “This whole Partygate scandal is making me start to wonder if something’s going wrong in the police. Like, perhaps there are bad officers who don’t enforce the law without fear or favour as they always have in the past.
“I almost wouldn’t be surprised to hear of corruption throughout the whole institution, preposterous as that seems. Or even racism.
“I think there should be an investigation. And I can’t think of a better bunch of guys to undertake it than the Metropolitan police.”
